Chantelle Richmond, PhD, is an Anishinabe scholar from Pic River First Nation. Her research is framed by community-based approaches that aim to understand how Indigenous heath is affected by processes of environmental dispossession. Through this work, she seeks to aid in the preservation of Indigenous Knowledge and the implementation of strategies that may foster environmental repossession efforts in affected communities. Chantelle is an Associate Professor at the University of Western Ontario, where she is Director of the Indigenous Health Lab, and Co-Director of the Indigenous Health and Well-Being Initiative. Chantelle co-wrote and produced a 60 minute documentary “Gifts from the Elders,” which focused on the preservation of Indigenous Knowledge among Anishinabe communities on the north shore of Lake Superior. Her research program is supported by a CIHR New Investigator Award and an Ontario Early Researcher Award.
